a perspective on how powerful the nra really is in the republican party because we had michael bloomberg, mayor of new york city, on "meet the press" last week. he said they are not that powerful. it is -- they are just -- ed rendell, former governor of pennsylvania. he got elected three times and said they are a piper tiger. >> i agree with the mayor. i said this for a very long time. the myth of the power of the nra is much greater than the actual power of the nra. you have to remember in -- talking about grover norquist and pledge or nra and -- their views, and -- you know, there are a lot of members of congress who are ideologically lined with the views of the organization. less about what the nra can do to them than they agree on most issues. they are getting that support. but if you go out and speak clearly to your constituents about what your views are on the issues and -- about revoking second amendment rights, really only talking about common sense reforms, i think most people would agree with you and most of your constituents, republican, sxind democrats would agree. >> we will be tal

i deplore the ground that is going to accomplish michael? it is all the question -- "i can deploy on the ground that is my goal? accomplish michael i think it is about this balance of having clear, realistic goals for the amount of resources you're willing to commit with. you brought up isr and border security. these are things that are extremely expensive to field. isr is great. the question is, what kind of isr do you want? isr you want is people on the ground you can trust with a cellphone were calling and telling you what is going on in the countryside. it is about as realistic planning. that is a great thing about africom. if it does the training exercises and it does the capacity building that they know how to do, they're going to provide -- they're going to help africans provide realistic solutions. heritage was the first foundation to make a credible argument for establishing africom. we want to facilitate solutions within those countries so united states does not get drawn in. if we let africom do its job, we can create sustainable solutions. i really believe that. >> can

this briefly, but the acting director of the cia, michael morelle is also complaining saying it quote, he departs from reality. should the government be working at all, in your opinion, with hollywood studios and helping them tell stories? this goes all the way back to top gun and maybe before that. is it a practice that should end in your opinion? >> no, i don't think it should necessarily end. i mean, again, you know, this film was originally set to come out before the election and we had documentation showing they were eager to work with them and make well, look very good, but i don't think it should end. you can work with the government without exposing national secrets and this highly classified after mission, the senators with all due respect would have been a lot better served dealing with it back then when they were getting unprecedented access and better served now to get to the bottom of benghazi and find out unanswered questions there and that's where their energy should probably be directed at now. >> dave: got to degree with you. scott taylor, great to have you. >> thank you.
